Four Executive meetings per year are planned plus a meeting at the Concrete Conference where a full review of activities will be presented, with all Members and Associate Members invited.

Executive meetings may include an address from an Associate Member on items of interest. Enquiries are welcome.

Every second year a biennial joint NPCAA/PCNZ meeting is held, alternating between Australia and New Zealand. The November 2016 meeting held in Sydney was a very worthwhile event and members should book early to secure accommodation for our next combined meeting in Queenstown New Zealand from 15th to 17th August 2018

The AGM in August each year will be a short meeting to approve budget, subscriptions, and to hold elections if required (normally every 2 years). It will be held in conjunction with the August Executive meeting. This will enable subscriptions to be invoiced earlier in our financial year which begins 1st July.

Members representatives are normally welcome at all Executive meetings but this should be confirmed with the President or Executive Director at least 48 hours prior. contact us

Seminars

Following the update of the combined subcontract agreement SA-2017 to ensure compliance with the Construction Contracts Amendment Act 2015 and alignment with NZS 3910:2013, it is expected a seminar series will be arranged for 2018.

A seminar series arranged by the NZ Specialist Trade Contractors Federation on the changes to the Construction Contracts Amendment Act 2015 was held early 2016. Notes on that presentation are available by request from precast@precastnz.org.nz.
